New Will Smith ‘After Earth’ Movie Delivered Great Plot,Action,Drama & More

New Will Smith ‘After Earth’ movie delivered great plot,action,drama & more. Columbia Pictures (Sony) dropped their new sci-fi/action flick “After Earth” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and was pleasantly surprised by how good it actually turned out to be. It turned out to be way better than I thought it would be,especially since I’m hearing that it didn’t do too well with box office numbers. But it definitely won me over. It stars father and son tag team: Will Smith and Jaden Smith.

In the new flick, Earth is devastated in an environmental cataclysm, and the human race has to relocate to another planet, called Nova Prime. The Ranger Corps, a peacekeeping organization commanded by General Cypher Raige (Will Smith) supervises the exodus, and comes into conflict with the S’krell, which are alien creatures that intended to conquer Nova Prime. Their secret weapon are the Ursas, which are monsters that can only see a human by sensing their fear, but Cypher learns how to “ghost” himself from the Ursas by completely ridding himself of all his fears. This eventually leads the Ranger Corps to victory.

After that insightful intro, the movie focuses itself on Cypher’s son, Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith), who blames himself for the death of his sister, Senshi (Zoë Kravitz), who was killed by an Ursa. He also fails to make ranger status due to his recklessness, and Cypher views him as a disappointment. Eventually, Kitai’s mother, Faia (Sophie Okonedo), convinces Cypher to take Kitai on his last voyage before retirement. Read more »

New Hangover 4 movie never happening,it’s truly the end. Hey, “Hangover” fans. Yep, we’re sorry to inform you that yes this franchise has really run its course. There will not be a Hangover 4,despite them teasing us with that crazy scene after the closing credits. According to Heatworld, Hangover,Alan Garner star, Zach Galifianakis , recently confirmed that it is truly the end,and that we were actually lucky to get a 3rd film,because he didn’t want to do it at first,stating to Empire Magazine: “It didn’t make sense at first.

I’m a leave-well-enough-alone kind of person. But looking back, I’m happy we did the third one. It feels like it’s wrapping up nicely, where the second didn’t feel like it was. A third one felt like it gave our characters a conclusion.” Also, we sort of figured this as well,since part 3 was reported to be the last film when they announced they were doing it way back when. Actually, I was hoping that news would change,because they did do such a great job with the part 3 storyline that I wouldn’t have mind seeing what they could do with a 4th installment. But at last,it is not to be. Read more »
